Nalanda Dharma School Honours Day & 8th Anniversary Observance

All in the family! The Nalanda Dharma School Honours Day falls on 31 December annually.

On the last day of 2012, members of Nalanda Dharma School came together for the perfect reunion, the School Honours Day!  This year, it was a big family gathering with the addition of junior students from Nalanda Education & Outreach (NEO) Centre in Happy Garden.  It is a day for all to reflect and also rejoice over the commitment to learning they have put in throughout the year.

The preparation for School Honours Day started on 29 December 2012 with students from both Naga House and Garuda House staying in at Nalanda Centre.  Volunteering to take over organising the event from facilitators, the students carried out the evening’s programme wonderfully with performances to entertain everyone during dinner time.

On this joyous occasion, several awards and recognitions were presented to the students. Naga House clinched the coveted Dhammavijaya Challenge Trophy by winning 211 points more than Garuda House!

The next day, 1st January 2013, marked the 8th Anniversary of Nalanda Dharma School.  The School facilitators observed the anniversary meaningfully by performing wholesome deeds and offering dana to the Sangha members at Wat Chetawan in Petaling Jaya.
